The 36-year-old went to Tottenham last year to train during the Major League Soccer off-season, but was unable to work out a loan agreement which would have allowed him to play for the club.

Beckham's Galaxy contract expires in November and he has yet to decide on his future after previously revealing he feels he can still play at the highest level.

Queens Park Rangers have been linked with a bid for Beckham, but should he return to the Premier League, Redknapp hopes it is with Tottenham instead.

The Spurs boss told The Sun: "If David wants to come to Tottenham I'd welcome him with open arms. He's definitely still good enough to play in the Premier League.

"His game was never about pace so whether he's quick or not isn't an issue. David's unique quality is his use of the ball and his ability to pick out a player with a pinpoint pass.

"He is unbelievable and still an exceptional talent."

For Redknapp, signing Beckham would be a coup not just for his footballing ability, but because of his attitude and the example he shows to the younger players.

He added: "I know first hand because we had him here last winter and he was terrific around the place.

"You couldn't find a nicer fella and a better professional. He's the best example there is for any young player, how he looks after himself, how he trains and how he's stayed an ordinary guy despite his extraordinary success.

"He is worth his weight in gold, he'd be an asset for any club. I'd have him here, that's for sure.

"He wouldn't be able to play until the January transfer window opens, though, because we've already lodged our 25 players with the Premier League. But he'd be a great one to have around the club again."
